Private Duty Field Trip

A unique experience where you and nine other owners will have the opportunity to spend one full day inside a $3 million+ private duty business.

Louisville, Kentucky
May 15-16, 2013

There’s no better way to learn how to grow your home care business into a multi-million dollar enterprise than to go deep inside with someone who has already done it.

The Private Duty Field Trip is a unique experience where you and eleven other owners will have the opportunity to spend one full day inside a $3 million + private duty business.  The owners will show you through their offices, introduce you to key team members, describe their organization structure, and show you their internal processes. 

Then you’ll have time to sit around the conference table and ask questions.  No holds barred. Ask anything you want. These incredible business owners are willing to open up their hearts, their minds, and their businesses to help you do what they have done … build a highly successful private duty business that makes a lasting impact on their clients, families, caregivers, and employees.  And, that makes a lot of money.
